AGDA SALA Exhibition

21 06 2010

Over the past few weeks I’ve been busy organising an art exhibition for the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA) which will form part of this year’s SALA Festival.

SALA is the South Australian Living Artists Festival which is held annually in Adelaide.

Converse® have been good enough to come on board and provide us with 30x pairs of kids Chuck Taylor High Top sneakers which will be used as the main medium for the art works making up the exhibition. AGDA designers are invited to use the sneakers as a starting point to paint, sculpt, disassemble, pimp-up etc to create a unique work of art.

Initial call for registrations went out today, with half the allocated places being filled within the first few hours. Exciting! Can’t wait to see what Adelaide’s designers come up with.

Also happy to report that the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation have been selected as our charity of choice for receiving proceeds from the sale of the works.

The exhibition will run from August 2-22, 2010. Launch event details TBA.
